A few days ago I was going online with either TvsC or SSBB, can't remember which and my wii suddenly made this loud vibrating sound which eventually died down abit, but I had to take the disc out to stop it completely. It still happens now and again when you insert a disk albeit not as loud, though the Wii does seems to hum a little louder since, especially with Metroid Prime 3 where the humming is loudest and a bit eratic.
After searching a bit online I found this is quite common with MP3. Also I've seen youtube "fixes" involving tightening/loosening some of the disk drive screws. Anyone had a go at this? My wii is old and out of warranty so I might as well have a go before sending it to nintendo for reapir (if it needs it).
I have the same issue with my console. I just tend to ignore it as once I'm playing the game I don't really notice it. The weird thing is its completely random when it does do it. For example on TvC it will sometimes make the louder humming noise and yet other times when I play it it doesn't make the noise
